I’ve been doing that quite a bit. I’ve bought every Disney+ Premier access pass thus far too. More so to support the model of releasing movies this way than to see the movies themselves, although it’s nice not having to wait for up to a year for once.
How do other folks feel about films going straight to iTunes to rent for £20 at the same they premier in the cinema?
Personally, I’m loving it. It’s much better to be able to watch these at home. You can rewatch as many times as you want for 48 hours from the moment you first press play. The price is the equivalent of 3 cinema tickets. And although you don’t get the big screen experience, I have a fairly decent home theatre setup that I’m satisfied with.
Cinemas are great when they’re empty and there’s just a few people watching. But when they’re busy, other people can tarnish the experience with their poor etiquette.
We have a small independent cinema nearby which I’m more than happy to support. They do the midnight showings and are really friendly too. I love the atmosphere of the cinema for the big films (like the 6 hour run for Infinity War and Endgame).
They’re just a basic community based cinema, but they’re really accomodating (they do autism showings, and showings with subtitles for example).
It’s the oldest cinema in Wales and used to be council run, but the community took over. It’s the only cinema in our borough so it’s a bit of a treasure. But can call Michael Sheen one of their supporters
I got quite lucky back when I was living in England in that my friend worked at the Odeon, so whenever a new film was coming out that I was desperate to see at the Cinema, They would find the best date and time to accommodate me. Wednesday mornings and Thursday nights were often the best times to go IIRC.
